What are cookies?

Cookies are harmless text files that web servers can store on your computer's hard drive, smart phone or other device when you visit a website. They allow the server to recognise you when you revisit. There are two main types:

  • Transient (or per-session) cookies. These only exist for the duration of your site visit and are deleted on exit. They recognise you as you move between pages
  • Persistent (or permanent) cookies - These are cookies, which remain on your device after you have visited our website. eg if you select the 'remember my details’ option. Persistent cookies help us identify you as a unique visitor; they do not contain information that could be used to identify you to another person. Persistent cookies are also used for performance analytics and for advertising purposes and help us tailor adverts to you more relevantly

At Paragon, we use both types of cookie.

Additionally, cookies can be first or third-party cookies. First-party cookies are owned and created by the website you're viewing. Third-party cookies are owned and created by an independent company, usually a company providing a service to the owners of the website.
